Left-Over Grits Casserole

grits casserole


I would guess it has happened to you once or twice, especially if you’re a southerner. You decide to create a shrimp-n-grits meal, have a fish fry, or make breakfast for dinner and you are left with cold, hard, grits. No self-respecting southerner wants left-over grits for breakfast. It simply isn’t the same as fresh grits. I have a solution for you! Wake up, pop the casserole dish in the oven to enjoy a Left-Over Grits Casserole for breakfast. While you’re getting ready, the aroma of the casserole will wake everyone up so… score!

Left-over grits (I had about 3 cups left over.)
1.5 – 2 cups of cheese (This depends on how cheesy you want to be.)
4 eggs
16 oz. all-natural ground breakfast sausage

Those cold left-over grits are not very appealing.
Ground Sausage
Hempler’s All Natural Breakfast Sausage

First, you will want to have some ground breakfast sausage in your freezer (or buy fresh). Brown the sausage, drain, and place into a casserole dish. Add the left-over grits. Add four eggs to the mixture along with all of the cheddar cheese except for ½ cup. Add the salt and pepper (to taste). Mix together. Smooth out mixture in casserole dish and add the remaining ½ of cheese on top. Put in the refrigerator and wait until morning to pop in the oven at 350⁰ for 40 minutes. Enjoy!
